    I'd like to see it with a tugbar :D

    Great looking bass, in one of my all time favourite colours. Nash makes great stuff... I still see a fretless Sonic Blue stack knob in my future.

    Didn't they have any that weren't all banged up :)

    Love the color, but I do thing a pearl PG would look mighty tasty.

    Thanks guys. The bass KILLS all around. Smooth neck, KILLER tone, feels great all around. Probably the best playing/sounding bass i've ever played.

    I'm not sure if you're serious, or being a troll.
    Let's hope it's not the latter, k?

    Very nice. I'm trying to work out a trade deal for a Nash P.

    ONLY criticism about this bass?

    Reverse Tuners, which I forgot about.

    Stupid 1960s!

    Congrats and welcome to J-bass nirvana. :bassist:

    You'll get used to the tuners real quick. (And they are the good stuff: beefier than the reverse tuners on my MIJ reissue.)

    i'm not being a troll :). i know nothing of nash basses except the fender connection, correct? thought maybe this was bought used and has had a neat history. unless it was bought new and was relic'd. either way i dig the instrument lots. the neck looks super fine. you thinnking of swapping the pickguard?

    Worst photographer? I dunno. Looks like you shot what you were aiming at. ;)


    And I agree with king biscuit: after seeing El Mon's LPB PJ5 with a tort guard, I think I might be fancying that combination a bit more.

    Delish score, bro. '70s spacing? Like, a "late '60s" thing?

    Oh, okay! :) Just making sure. As a mod, i delete more posts on relic bashers than anything else.

    But, anyway. The deal with Nash is he relics fender-esque parts. I dunno where he gets them.

    This guy has NAILED the 60s jazz bass tone. I don't know how he does it. But this bass is a 9.999/10. Given the reverse tuners which I'm not used to yet..

    Nope. It's blank.
    I'm kinda tempted to put a Fender decal on. But...

    1) Bill Nash wrote Nash on the headstock on the back.

    2) I'm lazy.
